Intel's job cuts a sign of PC's metamorphosis; keeping cool during a cyberassault
Intel just announced that it’s cutting 12,000 jobs in a restructuring effort that shifts focus away from PCs and onto growing technologies like wearables and IoT. In this week’s Searchlight, Site Editor Fran Sales explores the job cuts, how Intel plans to catch up to the PC revolution and the imperative for CIOs in meeting employees’ evolving computing needs. Also in Searchlight: Google faces even more EU antitrust charges and messaging app Viper announced that it encrypts all its messages.
When a cyberassault happens, it can be hard to keep a cool head. But, according to SearchCIO expert Harvey Koeppel, it can make all the difference. In this article, Koeppel recounts the steps he took when a cybersecurity threat halfway across the globe threatened his company just two weeks into his new CIO job and explains what that taught him about cybersecurity and the CIO role.
